CRE Industry Groups Support Obama ‘Better Building’ Plan?

According to  CoStar:

“Leading commercial real estate industry groups and green building experts appear to be in favor of President Obama’s new federal program to boost energy efficiency in commercial buildings by 20% over the next decade using a package of tax incentives and loan guarantees to induce owners to build green.

Trade and advocacy groups representing architects, contractors, developers, materials suppliers, real estate investors and property managers to name a few, praised the President’s “Better Buildings Initiative” as a market-centered approach that will create jobs and economic growth by encouraging investment in energy efficient new construction and retrofits of existing commercial and public buildings and institutions.
